Based on recommendation from this forum, I purchased an Innova OBD code reader. It has been very useful and I can echo all the previous endorsements. Keep in mind however, that just knowing the code, doesn't necessarily identify the problem / cause. Further diagnostics may be required, but what I like is knowing what the error code is when the "check engine" light goes on. Allows me to decide if I really need to proceed directly to the dealer as indicated on the dash! And if it is trivial, can just reset it yourself. I figure I have paid for it just by the savings from not having to take my wife's Volvo in to reset engine light when she forgets to tighten gas cap!just bought this
Whilst I dont think it can tell us the clutch wear or reset the parameters for certain parts of the clutch/gearbox software, I think its good to carry around in the car. In case of fault codes and cel lights etc or in the event of car not starting, we can surely use it to reset the fault codes (reset things) so hopefully can start the car and drive home.
What are your thoughts?
